2023 was another great year for the Kerrian’s Notebook subscribers to win books. Winners were chosen randomly during quarterly drawings, using The winners were then notified through Facebook and/or the email addresses they had provided. A list of at least ten books was sent to the winners, from which they picked their prize(s).

The majority of the books have been (and will continue to be in 2024) mysteries, thrillers, and novels of suspense, in keeping with the Kerrian’s Notebook theme. The books were purchased at indie bookstores, brick & mortar chain bookstores, and a delightful gently-used-hardcover bookstore about 40 miles from here. Many of the books were stay-awake reads, many were bestsellers, some were donated by the authors, and some were passed along to other readers. Because of the participation of our Kerrian subscribers, we were able to give away 130 books in 2023!

Tell your friends! If they subscribe, and let us know that you referred them, you get a free book (from a 2024 list). Looking for a great read? Take a look at the terrific books the Kerrian’s Notebook subscribers chose in 2023:
